Did You Know!?!?!?!!


Blaze Express Housing now offers short-term, on-campus accommodations on the first floor of Residence Hall B.  The Blaze Express program was initiated by University Housing and the Office of Commuter and Non-Traditional Student Services to provide temporary overnight housing for commuter students.

The seven Blaze Express rooms are in a wing separated from the rest of Residence Hall B. Only Blaze Express “customers” will have access, and rooms are secured with a keycard. Rooms are available from Sunday nights through Friday mornings during the fall and spring semesters. Guests may “check in” for no more than three nights per week and a total of six nights per month. The cost is $40 a night, which includes linens. Each room is equipped with a flat-screen, high-definition television and Wi-Fi access.  A graduate-student Community Assistant is the only other person living on that floor.

University Housing officials believe this is the only program of its kind within Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education, and perhaps in the United States.

In addition to giving commuter students a taste of on-campus living, “it’s convenient for commuters who want or need to be here late at night or early in the morning,” says Sheleta Camarda-Webb ’89, ‘94, the commuter office’s director.
